Prime Time Nourish: Discussing Food and the Human Experience through the Lens of Children’s Books Prime Time Nourish was developed in 2021 as the culmination of a multi-year project exploring food as both fuel for our bodies and fodder for rich, intergenerational discussions among the audiences that attend Prime Time Family Reading programs. Launched in 1991 by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, Prime Time Family Reading has since reached more than 50,000 families in over 40 partner states. Families who engage in the story-sharing, discussion, and center-based play sparked by Prime Time Nourish are able to articulate the significance of food in their lives and communities, and to make informed and thoughtful decisions about how they put themselves in relationship with food.
